    An odd failure when trying to download the latest version - it barely starts and immediately pops up a window with:
    Download failed: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

    My girlfriend had the same problem yesterday (we share a connection, FWIW).

    When I went to the download link on the home page I was able to download the release with no problem, as well as the latest beta (which, oddly, is older than the release - you may want that link to point to the release as well). I continue to not be able to auto update, and I'm about to just install it directly (so won't test it any more).

    I'm running on Win XP SP2, updating from 1.8.587.

    [edit] Once updated, it works just fine, as normal. As always, many thanks for providing such a great tool.

    Wow was not originally developed just for windows. Blizzard has -always- had mac support in every single one of their titles.

    You misunderstand me, which led you into what appears to be a pet issue, on which I actually agree with you completely. :-)

    I was simply saying that Blizz knew from the beginning of their development that they had to support Windows and its case-insensitive file system (that actually fouls up existing case in certain cases), so they have had no choice - they *must* be case-insensitive to naming, including on addons.

    I'm not saying they developed *just* for Windows, merely that they knew the limitations from the start because it's a primary target environment.

    Enough said - I don't want to derail the main conversation.

    Or maybe I can make the dependency detection in WUU case insensitive - as long as WoW itself finds IceHUD when IceHud is typed (even on a case sensitive OS?) there's no reason WUU should act any different. I can't imagine any case where someone would have two different addons in directories where the names are the same, but differs in casing - and expects WoW to know which is which.

    Since WoW was originally developed for Windows, which is case-insensitive (sometimes aggressively so), addon names *have* to be unique regardlss of case, so just doing a case-insensitive search should work as intended.

    The online database appears to be borked.

    I have a laptop that I occasionally log into WoW from to check auctions, and just upgraded WUU on it for the first time in a month. It blew away my addon list, which I remember from my main installation, but I am now not able to get the online database to work. When I hit (Ctrl-M), I get this in the log:
    2007-11-02 16:17:46: (INFO) Scanned Addon directory, 153 Addons found (140 new, 0 installed fresh, 0 missing, 13 ignored, 0 dummy, 0 deleted, 0 children)
    2007-11-02 16:17:47: (WARN) Online version of WUU: 1.6.467
    2007-11-02 16:17:47: (INFO) Checking for new site regexps
    2007-11-02 16:17:48: --- READY ---
    2007-11-02 16:17:52: (INFO) Checking [Unknown] Addons with the Online DB
    2007-11-02 16:17:57: (WARN) Online DB check failed: WoWAceAddon instance has no attribute 'localversion'
    2007-11-02 16:18:17: (INFO) Checking [Unknown] Addons with the Online DB
    2007-11-02 16:18:18: (WARN) Online DB check failed: WoWAceAddon instance has no attribute 'localversion'

    Everything persistently stays as [unknown], and I'm dead in the water.

    This didn't happen at home with 1.6.446 (I *think* that was when it required me to re-scan at home); it's happening here and now with 1.6.467. Either the online database is down (in which case the message should be a lot clearer), or something broke recently, between those versions.

    It's bad timing (not that there *is* a good time); I just posted in my guild forums to recommend WUU to folks before the upcoming 2.3 patch. If they can't set up with WUU, they lose (and so do all of us who love WUU).

    Edit: I forgot to mention that after it failed the online DB check after the upgrade, I renamed the directory and the addons.wurm.xml file and did a fresh install of WUU to see if that would help. It did not. The log above is from the fresh install.

    Just tried to update automatically and the process failed. Here's the output:

    Output folder: D:\Games\World of Warcraft\Tools\WUU
    Killing all running instances of WUU.exe
    Running WUU.exe to check digital signature of downloaded file
    Digital signature verified!
    Running WUU.exe to extract downloaded file
    WUU-1.5.378.zip extracted to temporary directory
    Copying extracted files to D:\Games\World of Warcraft\Tools\WUU
    Delete file: C:\DOCUME~1\SPACEF~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\Wurm\WUU\UpdateWUUbeta.exe
    Copy to D:\Games\World of Warcraft\Tools\WUU\
    Copy failed
    Completed


    Is there anything I can do to get it to complete or should I just download and manually run the installation file myself?


    Make sure WUU.exe isn't running (you might have to check in task manager), then run UpdateWUUbeta.exe manually - probably just a "stray process" (I hope)

    Didn't work. :/

    I verified that WUU.exe was not running and then ran UpdateWUUbeta.exe from the directory where WUU is installed. The output is the same. I'm running WinXP SP1 as admin.


    I'm having the same experience at home, with the exact same output (except for disk letter - my game is on F:, not D:), and wasn't going to pile on since it was already noted. However, I just updated on my laptop and it worked just fine.

    If you can suggest what to look for in terms of possible differences between the two systems, I may be able to track this one down. Even if you can't suggest something I'll still try, but it really helps to start looking in the right place. :-)

    I'm still using WUU and loving it (and evangelizing in-guild), but I've had a problem with the auto-update the last two releases. It almost works, but then the final(?) copy fails. The details are as follows:

    Output folder: F:\Games\World of Warcraft\WUU
    Running WUU.exe to check digital signature of downloaded file
    Digital signature verified!
    Running WUU.exe to extract downloaded file
    WUU-1.4.330.zip extracted to temporary directory
    Copying extracted files to F:\Games\World of Warcraft\WUU
    Delete file: C:\DOCUME~1\Erik\LOCALS~1\Temp\Wurm\WUU\UpdateWUU.exe
    Copy to F:\Games\World of Warcraft\WUU\
    Copy failed
    Completed


    So far, I'm just manually downloading the new versions, but it'd be nice to get the auto-update working.

    2 things:

    UpdateWUUbeta.exe is still pulling down 1.3.241, not .248. I had to get .248 manually. And for some reason, once I did that it had the wrong drive letter for my WoW directory and I had to correct that manually in the Preferences. I don't know if that's a real bug or just a one-time unexplainable glitch. :-)

    Secondly, I've got my girlfriend using WUU. Watching her learn to use it, I've realized a small change to the UI that would make it much easier for new users: add buttons for Check All Versions and Update All. Those are your most commonly used functions, so buttons for them would be a major help for the new user learning curve. A new button for "first time setup" that did the scan and check against the online database would also be good, but that's not quite as trivial.

    Still love the program, and I'm now trying to get my guildies to pick it up and start using it too. Keep up the great work!

    GathererAddon: Should be very simple, due to the similarity to Auctioneer (why are they separate pages at all...?)


    Frick if I know. :-) I've wondered that myself

    Quote from lejordet »

    I'm working on stamping out Unicode bugs, but they're kind of "squash 'em when they appear" (without checking, I'm guessing the .toc file for those two addons have "special characters", like "???" or Kyrillic or something :) WUU used to crash on a WoWAce addon where the author's name had an "?" in it :P)


    And sure enough, there are odd characters in the .toc, just as you thought. I'll get in touch with the author and ask him if he can change them to something clean.

    Thanks much!

    I just discovered this utility, and I love it - I used to spend several hours every patch dealing with updating addons, and it's now a 2 click process. Thanks for a great job.

    However, I have two issues with the current version.

    1) I use Gatherer, which is at http://gathereraddon.com which is laid out and organized *exactly* like auctioneeraddon.com. Can this be added?

    2) There are two addons I use that throw errors. One updates successfully despite the errors, the other does not. To add to the mystery, they're both created by the same author. The addons are TankPoints (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info6419-TankPoints.html) and RatingBuster (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info5819-RatingBuster.html), both by Whitetooth. The error WUU throws is:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "WUU.py", line 1400, in OnListItemSelected
    UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe5 in position 417: ordinal not in range(128)
    on one file and
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "WUU.py", line 1400, in OnListItemSelected
    UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe5 in position 414: ordinal not in range(128)
    on the other.

    I'm suspecting that there may be something wonky about his .zip file builder, since both of his addons throw errors and no others do, but it seems appropriate to check with you first to be sure before bothering him with pure speculation. :-)

    Thanks again for a great piece of work.
